If you watched Dumb And Dumber To, then you know that Lloyd fakes being sick for a really long time as a joke towards his friend Harry. He sits in a wheelchair, let’s Harry change his diapers, and doesn’t talk. Well, that’s pretty dumb, and you might think that no man would do that in his right mind, but apparently you would be wrong.
A man in the UK faked being a quadriplegic and in coma for 2 years. Of course, he didn’t sit in a hospital like Lloyd, but still…he wasted 2 years of his life with this ridiculous charade.
When he was faced with a trial for conning a neighbor out of over $64,000, he went into a ‘coma’ so that he didn’t have to deal with the issue. He was living off benefits. Truthfully, he would probably still be in it if he wasn’t so stupid to go out of his house.
His wife makes up the ‘Dumber’ of this real life Dumb and Dumber duo, and she pretended to take care of him throughout this whole time. Of course, since they were not really dealing with a coma, and they were idiots, they went out of the house and got caught last year.
This guy wasted people’s money and time just to save himself. This is one of the most selfish people I have ever seen, along with his wife, and it amazes me that there are people out there like this. It is absolutely unbelievable! What’s worse, he only got four and half years. He should be in jail for life.
The lesson on happiness? If you are going to pretend to be in a coma, take it all the way. Stay home, watch TV, and only come out at night. Or, just face up to the crappy things YOU do in life and avoid wasting two years of your life (and everyone else’s) pretending to be in a coma.
